The truth about the iPhone 5 Glass Replacement!

Hello everyone, this post is in response to the THOUSANDS of you that have read our earlier post about the iPhone 4 glass replacements. I just need to clarify some of the questions that we receive constantly about this particular repair.

The dreaded iPhone 5 “cracked glass” issue!

We are flowing a massive amount of iPhone 4 glass Replacements through our business these days – iPhone 5 parts and repairs are steadily growing and I want to clear up a few inquiries right here:

1. The 4/4S Glass,Digitizer and LCD WILL NOT WORK in your iPhone 5. As they look similar, they are 100% different products and not interchangeable.

2. The iPhone 5 Glass Repair is more expensive than the 4 and 4S iPhone Screen Repair. The reason is that the iPhone 5 version of the glass is a new technology called In-cell display. What this means is the display on the iPhone 5 is interlaced together like a carbon fiber, apposed to the iPhone 4/4s displays that are just fused on top of each other. With In-cell technology,you have a much better picture and can create a much thinner display.

3. You cannot just replace the glass on the iPhone 5. To fix a cracked glass on an iPhone 5 we must replace the glass, digitizer and the LCD as I stated above. These parts are (for a lack of better term) “interlaced” together from the factory. There is just no way to safely separate and reuse any of these parts.

4. You cannot use “plexiglass” and perform your own “cheap” repair. This is ridiculous. I have seen posts advising this and I challenge anyone to prove that they can get the touch digitizer and LCD off of their broken glass front and get it to work with a home made plexiglass front. Can’t be done.

5. We do sell “Do-it-yourself” iPhone 4 Glass assemblies & iPhone 4S Glass assemblies and we will soon offer the same for the black and white iPhone 5.

This will help with some of the common questions, for sure. We know that there are many theories out there but you can take solid advice from us here at Mission Repair. We’ve repaired THOUSANDS of units and it makes perfect sense to listen to the voice of experience. Still have questions? Give us a call at 866-638-8402 and we’ll get you on the phone with a technician right away!

iPhone 4 Repair!

Hello M:R Nation –

Did you know that the iPhone 4 is almost 3 years old? Yeah, thats a true statement that I didn’t believe and had to research for myself. It’s mind boggling to think how fast time goes by. It seemed like just yesterday we waited in line at our local Apple store and shared our experience.

Why is this topic even coming up, you ask? Well, the iPhone 4 continues to remain relevant even after almost 1095 days. I think its safe to say that the iPhone 4 is the mother of the modern day smart phone. Which is why it is so timeless. Its technology was beyond it’s years.

People love this phone so much that they coming back to repair them again and again (I’m sure our Got Repair benefit has something to do with it)! But believe it or not, the amount of fist time customers we see needing iPhone 4 repairs is truly amazing.

It’s not easy to remember what came out last week, let alone 3 years ago, but with the iPhone 4 remaining a prevalent repair service for us at Mission Repair, it will be a long while before we forget about this beauty of a phone!

So, as long as you our customers keep asking for it, we will keep repairing it. With a very wide range of repair capability, there is nothing on the iPhone 4 that we can’t fix for you. Of course, we have the more popular iPhone 4 Front Glass Screen and Phone 4 Back Glass repairs, but the choices go way beyond that.
